Testimonials from our happy clients


We’ve been bringing our dog to Diamond Creek for about 4 years and think they’re great. We’ve taken a number of obedience classes, enrolled our dog in a few activities, including agility and nose-work. And he’s been going to playcare twice a week. He loves it there and we love that he has a place to be social and burn off energy, as well as activities that we can do with him.
We have also boarded our dog with Diamond Creek on many occasions, sometimes for as long as 4 or 5 days. He knows all the people and is comfortable, and he is very well taken care of. We especially like that when he stays with them we can choose a little extra outside time or snacks or cuddle time for him. That way we can keep his experience as close to his normal routine as possible.
When we’ve used their grooming services we’re always happy with the result. Our little buddy doesn’t like his feet touched but the grooming staff is patient and gentle (but firm) and they manage to get his nails clipped without major incident. And when he needs a bath he always comes out of the grooming room clean and fluffy… and ready to go out and roll in something. Over the 4 years we’ve known them, the staff has consistently been helpful and kind, and they all love dogs. If we have a question it is answered happily, if we have a concern they listen and help us address it. When your business is dogs things can be somewhat unpredictable and they do a wonderful job of running things as smoothly as possible. We won’t go anywhere else.

Just want to say when Chris picked up our dog Sadie from Play Care tonight she was given a Christmas Card like picture of Sadie that they made for her and it was awesome. They take great care of her and she can’t wait until Fridays when she gets to go. Thank you and your staff.

This is the first place I have boarded my pup. I have a 3 year old small beagle. So far, I really like it here! I was recommended it by my boyfriend’s mom who has taken her dog here for obedient classes. The staff is nice, especially Lindsey who has been awesome since the first time I called and visits since. I would definitely recommend to others. They also have a nice facility. I am interested in trying some other services that they offer.

Chelsea L. of Waltham, MA

I am very pleased with the staff and their service.
I have a male Norfolk Terrier puppy, “King Louie.”
Since 7 months old, he has been through 3 sessions of training
successfully. He has boarded there successfully, and goes to doggie play care regularly. When approaching the center, he can hardly contain himself, he is so excited to be there and be with people and the dogs.
My greatest concern for Louie, when in the care of others, is his safety.
Over the past 7 months, his experience has been very positive, and I have been happy with both the service and the staff.

A warm thank you to all the Staff at Diamond Creek from both MacKenzie and us. As you know it was her first experience with staying in a kennel…she loved it and so did we. Our family get together in the rental home was made ever so much nicer by having such a wonderful, close by place for our very special dog.

It’s an hour and a half one way trip for me, but it’s worth it for the wonderful care they give my pets.

Mary L. of Darien, CT

They know dogs. They are very good. One thing I really like is how clean the facility is.
